Tweak3D heeft een review op haar site geplaatst van de Quantum Atlas 10K II 37.2GB SCSI harde schijf. De reviewer is geen professional en is dan ook alleen maar geïnteresseerd in het feit of het gebruiken van een SCSI drive nou iets uitmaakt in het dagelijks gebruik (en tijdens het gamen, natuurlijk). Hier wordt heel positief over gesproken:
Previous to this review, I was running Windows and all my games off of a 5400 RPM Maxtor ATA33 hard drive. It was slow. Painfully slow. The first time I let Windows boot up using the Atlas 10K II it blew me away. The drive loaded everything at once in amazing time. Windows literally booted in under half the time it usually took my IDE drive. Not only that, but there wasn't left-over hard drive reading after it booted. It was perfectly smooth. I decided to try playing a game that would eat some hard drive, so I ran Quake 3 @ 1600x1200x32bpp with every setting on high. Granted I do have a GeForce 2 Ultra (64 MB), a Celeron 566@850, and (only) 128 CAS2 MB SDRAM, but usually on crowded levels in Quake 3, it was quite noticeable when the hard drive swapped. If the hard drive was swapping at all during my gameplay, I didn't even notice. The hard drive read LED (on the drive itself) barely even blinked when running even the most intense levels. The same went for Unreal Tournament -- it ran perfect. I was planning on doubling my RAM, but as long as I have this drive in, nothing needs it. The swap file is accessed so quickly that slow downs are basically non-existent.
De conclusie was dan ook dat de drive zijn geld dubbel en dwars waard was.
